These are just a few of my favourite Uganda trips and experiences, some of which I have also written about on Diary of a Muzungu http://www.diaryofamuzungu.com

Uganda
Mgahinga is an inspiring location and a great base if you’re a hiker or walker. On day one, we hiked across cool, undulating countryside between fields of potatoes in delicate purple flower. As we walked, we were told about the traditional life of...

Sunset on Lake Victoria's Ssesse Islands. Why fly to the crowded beaches of the East African coast when these beautiful, quiet white sandy beaches are on your doorstep? This photo was taken on Kalangala, one November. Tranquil waters, lush green...

The best experiences are those that need no words. At the top of Murchison Falls in Uganda, even if you wanted to throw words into the misty air, you’d need to be very determined to yell them loud enough for anyone to hear over the roaring of the...

Entebbe, Uganda
In February 2013, my husband Michael and I set off on an 8-month trip around the world. Here’s one of the many highlights of our adventure… After going on a safari and gorilla trek where we observed wildlife at a distance, we met animals up close...

7041 Ternan Ave street, Kampala, Uganda
I just couldn't stop staring at these enormous birds with their bald heads, long beaks, long, thin legs and magnificent flights.The Marabou Stork is gigantic with a wingspang of 2.87 m making it one of the largest flying birds in the world. As you...

Jinja, Uganda

Save Place
Market Square Rd, Kampala, Uganda
Smack in the center of the Ugandan capital, Kampala, sits bustling Nakasero Market. The busy market has a live animal section as well as departments for household appliances and clothes and whatever else you might need. There are also plenty of...
Save Place
Chimpanzee Island, Uganda
Ngamba Island Sanctuary in Uganda is one of the only places in the world where you can have an up close experience with almost-wild chimpanzees. I’ve taken an hour-long boat ride from Entebbe to the island, for the opportunity to walk and play...
Save Place
Jinja, Uganda
If you are planning to head to Jinja and go rafting (or perhaps you are the only one not!) then make sure you book yourself in for a minimum of one hour ATV-ing. It's a different way to visit the local villages and a heap of fun. You will have...
Save Place
Lalibela, Ethiopia
It’s mid April, which is the hot, dry summer in Ethiopia, but up here at 11,500 feet the mornings are cool in the thin air. My accommodation for the night has been a stone tukul – the local style of round stone house with a thatched roof. Five of...
